What is it?
The Managed Workstation program is Yale University’s approach to managing University software and hardware computer needs. It offers enhanced data security, while offering increased computing productivity and provides optimization from an operational perspective to maximize your computing power, and minimize any threat from surfing the web, email attachments, etc. This more reliable computing environment also comes with a centralized management of computer hardware and software throughout the four-year life cycle of computers that participate in the program, which results in a reduction in department support costs.
Who can use it?
All Yale faculty and staff are eligible for participating in the Managed Workstation program.
